    I ordered the automatic chicken coop door last week after a raccoon snuck into our coop and killed one of our ee pullets. The box had everything you need in it! Timer, screws, even trim to go around the door! It works perfectly and took about 10 minutes to install. I'm so happy now! I highly recommend this door to anyone that is worried about night-time predators.

    That's great! I'm glad you didn't have any trouble installing it.

    Is this an electric or battery operated door? I can't really tell from the website.

    they have electric and solar powered. I got the electric one, half the cost. I checked on the girls earlier and watched the door close at 9:00! Now I know they are safe [​IMG]

    I got my 2nd one from Foy's, and installed it today all by myself. Gotta adjust the light sensor tonight, then it's good to go. It was really easy.
